8 mile progression from 6:20-5:50
5 Miles in 31:00 (6:12 average)
4 miles cool down for 12 miles total
Yeah this workout was an epic fail. I know that my latest goal is to not drop out of workouts, but I think this deserves a special exception given the circumstances. Essentially, I ran within 2 seconds my road PR in a 5k on Saturday night, and then 12 hour later, ran for 1:40 at Salem Lake in the humidity. Then I floated a river in the sun for three hours. I think that this alone took a lot more out of my body than I had expected. In hindsight, I kind of wish I had just not done a workout at all today, but there were so many people running a tempo from the dowd that I couldn't resist. In the end, I got in 5 miles of a poor tempo at a slower pace than I'm used to, but at least I got in some sort of decent workout in this weather.
